Join Craig Johnson for a book signing at Country Bookshelf for LONGMIRE DEFENSE on Saturday, September 30th at noon.

Involved in a search & rescue in the Bighorn Mountains, Walt Longmire finds himself on a rock outcropping where he remembers his father telling him about the first time he saw a man die. In the late forties, Bill Sutherland is killed but the investigation is stymied because no member of the elk camp was carrying the caliber rifle that killed the Wyoming State Accountant. When Dog discovers the weapon, it catapults the Sheriff of Absaroka County on an investigation with ties to a hidden mineral fund that may be worth billions. The embodiment of the fair-minded detective, Walt is pushed to his ethical boundaries when he discovers the rifle in question belonged to none other than Lloyd Longmire, his grandfather.
